Bloody Red Velvet Cupcakes: traditional red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and a shocking addition of raspberry coulis. It’s my new favorite Halloween treat! Remember when red velvet was super popular? Red velvet was the cool kid before cronuts, cuffins, rainbow bagels, and those giant over the top milkshakes ever existed.
It’s not quite chocolate. It isn’t really vanilla. It’s something in between and it’s a flavor I’ll always love (when done right). It’s a tad sweet, a little tangy, as immature as it sounds- I like how the artifical coloring makes my lips and tongue red. Red velvet cake reminds me of childhood birthdays, holiday parties, and every other happy occassion celebrated with cake.Sadly I no longer dress up in Halloween costumes. Nowadays, I prefer to participate in this fun holiday by making Halloween themed desserts and cocktails. Since I had so much fun with my surprise bloody cake, I’m using the same raspberry coulis (blood) for another treat. These bloody red velvet cupcakes are my new favorite! I lost interest red velvet some time ago, but this revived my love for this classic cupcake.
